Back in lockdown, back on the breast pump.
« on: October 15, 2020, 04:14:23 pm »
I am back in house arrest, but I have an objective.

I am back on the breast pump full time, with the objective of achieving lactation.

Hey Valerie,,,,    Keep us updated on the progress with the pump.   I know you sent me a pm on the success you had and I still am thinking on the pump route.   I desperately need some little more meat in the cups.
Thanks

Thank you for your interest!

I am now pumping several times a day. I was getting very sore, but I changed to the largest flange size with coconut oil lubrication.

Between pumping sessions, I wear breast shields in my bra to protect my nipples, and apply "Marmet" technique breast massage before going back onto the pump.

In my experience, if you pump regularly, your breast vulume will grow, particularly under the nipple.
